I used to neglect that a lot too; should have mentioned that.  Since
I'm not using it in a performance-critical situation, and well over
90% of my Coda content is VC-controlled anyway, I don't hesitate to do
venus -init.

In my application, where I'm storing mostly shared sources in Coda,
historically all my conflicts were Venus getting confused by too-rapid
updates from CVS.  That particular bug has been fixed as of 6.0.3, but
if your usage is similar to mine, you might be able to save yourself
some trouble by making it a habit to reinit venus when you restart.

Of course if your application involves making important changes while
venus is partitioned from the server, you don't dare do that (a reinit
flushes the cached files -- it clears the "known" directory structure).
